Ahead of the crucial Rajasthan polls on December 1, the opposition party in the state BJP announced their election manifesto in the state yesterday, amidst top notch of the party leadership such as BJP President Rajnath Singh and BJP Chief Ministerial candidate in state, Vasundhara Raje. Among the main highlights in the document are 5% reservation promises to Gujjars, Rebari and Raika communities in the state under Schedule Nine of the Constitution, development of educational infrastructure such as Madrasahs to favour the minorities as well as rehabilitate Hindus from the neighboring country of Pakistan.
Termed the ‘Suraaj Sankalp Patra’, the manifesto is fairly ‘populist’ in appeal. The BJP also promised to enhance employment opportunities for the youth, besides providing farmer loans at 1% interest and many other such promises. As Raje said in the press conference, “We will provide employment opportunities to 1.5 million youths. We will also ensure uninterrupted electricity supply 24 hours a day.” In lieu of the increased incidences of crimes against women, the BJP assured security for girls and women. Raje asserted that a re-introduction of the Bhamashah Yojana, ensuring accounts for women to make direct cash transfers, will be done.
The BJP manifesto repeats a number of points of the Congress’s, though with enhanced policies. Both have promises made to government employees, betterment of the heath sector, increasing rural industrial hubs, besides the other points mentioned above.
Rajnath Singh claimed that the BJP will come to power in the state, as people have lost faith with the corrupt Congress rule in Rajasthan.
